my previous posting
Actually i've been keeping this article for quite long already as a posting draft. But some related articles in http://www.dbosfm.blogspot.com/ stole my attention to post on what i've wrote and think for all this while.
Sabah Music Channel....Sabah 'E' News...Sabah Entertainment Channel....you named it...i don't really bother about it!
What important to me the most is the 'existence and implimentation' of this channel is the matter.
I could not imagine the huge impact may hits Sabah's music scene if the program really became a reality...if i'm not mistaken the program will be launch this March 16th 2009 and known as 'Muzik Aktif' an entertainment channel covering video clips of local singers from various ethnic, genre, langguages and cultures.
It is a big YES! to us here in Sabah...something that our music industry have been 'wishing' for. As I wrote before..Sabah music industry is very unique...we have our own markets, as big as what our so called 'national artists' market has throughout Malaysia. Our new and fresh group of teenagers, a new generation's Sabahan has a vast varities of 'new ideas and talents' that cannot be denied on par (some world class) of what Malaysia has now ....that can be aired to all Malaysian viewers...to understand us and to now about us..in the other parts of East Malaysia.
RTM going digital is a thumbs up not only for diversification but also to boost its market share in media bussinesses. For sure our local retailers or hypermarket will advertise in this channel let alone if Sabah granted its own TV channel.
As for us it is the time that our local music production or production house sit and conduct brainstorming session on Sabahan 'product or production' that can be sale to this channel. No more depicable thinking of asal ada lah...or bulih la bah kampung-kampung...types of material you expect to offer to the nation's market.
This issue/program actually have been brought up for consideration since 10 years ago..and we've been with those in the authority talking (dreaming!) about it to happen then. Those days we do have our own ideas too...err secret lah!..now! will do it with dBOSfm nanti...
Based on my info, this channel interested in local documentaries, telemovies, music or talent show, local video clips (bukan karaoke clips ah), reality show (hah??? realiti show lagi??..bah siapa paling kuat makan butod cicah bosou!) or any new and great ideas....and the payment is good as well hehehe...
